Arrange the following types of photons of electromagnetic radiation in order of increasing frequency: visible light, radio waves, ultraviolet radiation, infrared radiation.

Arranging these types of electromagnetic radiation in order of increasing frequency is synonymous with arranging them based on increasing energy (since energy and frequency are directly proportional; the higher the frequency, the higher the energy) or decreasing wavelength (the higher the frequency, the smaller the wavelength). I would check out Figure 1A.9 on Page 6 for help in answering this question, as it shows the electromagnetic spectrum based on wavelength. Hope this helps!

Radio waves have the lowest frequency, infrared radiation has lower frequency and longer wavelength than visible light and is usually emitted in the form of heat so it is has lower energy, visible light can be thought of as a transition spectrum between the infrared and the ultraviolet radiation, having lower frequency than ultraviolet but higher frequency than infrared radiation, ultraviolet radiation has the highest frequency and therefore will have the highest energy.

Radio waves, infrared radiation, visible light, ultraviolet radiation.
